    Interview

    It was all really easy. You go in, ask for the manager, wait 20 minutes for him to come out, and you sit down at a random table. Generic questions. Why do you want this job? How long do you plan on staying? What are you looking for exactly? Why do you think you're a good fit? Prior work experience, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Houston, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I got called for an interview two days after submitting my application online but was rescheduled to a few days later.
    The interview process was less than 10 minutes (Felt like it was less than 5). I felt as if the woman who interviewed me wasn't really interested in me. She basically just went over the application I filled online and then asked me the basic questions along with a scenario.
